There are many hospitals in Srinagar city and some of them are covid designated hospitals. After the recent surge in the covid positive cases, Divisional Commissioner (Div Com) Kashmir visited some of the hospitals and directed strict implementation of CAB.
During the visit he also reviewed the preparedness of these institutions for containment of Covid and inspected adherence to Covid Appropriate Behaviour (CAB) in these health institutions.
He visited SMHS, Super Speciality Hospital, Bone & Joint Hospital, UPHC Chanapora, MMC Sanat Nagar & College of Nursing, and GMC Srinagar.
During the visit, he stressed upon the heads of institutions to strictly implement CAB in these institutions to contain the spread of virus.
He also gave on spot directions to the administrators of these institutions that they should bring a more vibrant change in their approach while monitoring Covid Specific SOPs.
He directed concerned HoDs not to allow entry of any unmasked attendant in the hospital premises and enjoined upon them to allow only vaccinated attendants to accompany sick patients.
As there is a resurgence of cases in Kashmir valley, especially Srinagar district, we have to be very vigilant and alert so that we can keep the virus at bay which will eventually help us to delay any effect of a possible 3rd wave.
He directed the Principal of College of Nursing, GMC Srinagar to arrange special classes for the students that they missed due to covid lockdown so that they appear in exams better prepared.
